Eastern Beach Trip
On Monday February 27th the whole of Panmure Bridge School went to Eastern Beach. The start of the day was great until... the bus was late! I was confused but eventually we got there. We had a yummy snack and classes put their bags under the shade of trees. After that Tevita brought a rugby ball and we boys played an exciting game of touch. All the classes were getting called up to do the life jacket drill, I knew that our class was next. Then Mr. Johnston said
“room 5 come to the beach for your life jacket drill”. I quickly raced
over to my togs. I was as quick as a Ferrari to get in the water and put my life jacket on, but “Aahhhhhhhhhhhhhh”! The water was as cold as ice blocks, and I kept spitting water out of my mouth, every ten seconds.With my life jacket on I and some other people were going out far in the ocean until we got to the teachers canoe. Mr. Johnston told our class to get out of the freezing water. I started playing touch again but this time Mr. Nepia was playing. He should be in the All Blacks because he’s got skills. Ohhh it was time to go now I was tired and wanted to go to sleep on the bus. The racket of people talking kept me awake. I went to sleep early that night and felt great the next morning.
